I'm an Expert Amazon and Nordstrom Gift Shopper—30 Ideas for Your Consideration

If you're reading this, you probably haven't finished your holiday gift shopping yet, and that's okay. Life is busy, and you might have a lot of people to shop for, so don't be too hard on yourself. That said, you should probably go ahead and check all of the names off of your list so that you can enjoy the holiday season sans gift-giving stress.

Luckily, you still have plenty of time to shop for gifts at Amazon and Nordstrom, as they offer some of the fastest shipping on the internet. (And we love them for it.) They also have tons of gifts to choose from, but some overwhelmed shoppers would say that there are too many. That's where I come in. I've been keeping track of the best Amazon and Nordstrom gifts for weeks, and I'm ready to share.
